    When we read about Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty as little girls, our dream was to find our Prince Charming. Unfortunately, many women are still looking for him, and like the Princess and the Frog, they found themselves with the frog. What has happened to Prince Charming? The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence reports that one in every four women will experience domestic violence; an estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year. A New Male Nation: A Philosophical Collection of Articles About Culture, Sports and the Quest for Power provides insight into what has changed our Prince Charming into Freddie Krueger. This book is not about male bashing; it is about a culture that has somehow influenced men to behave differently towards women. These selections are sure to spark lively discussions about how men think and what has changed.

    The selections included:

    • Caveman Masculinity: Finding an Ethnicity in Evolutionary Science discusses the appearance of the caveman stereotype and the disappearance of Prince Charming.
    • Freaks, Geeks, and Cool Kids: Teenagers, Status and Consumerism explains the status system and how status is related to power.
    • Making Sense of Sports: Why Competition Excites Us provides three general observations of the reasons for the existence and longevity of sports.
    • "Race" and Sport: Critical Race Theory outlines key tenets of Critical Race Theory as an important framework to critically consider issues related to .race. racism and sport.
    • Men Speak Out: Views on Gender, Sex, and Power discusses how men are and how they view women.
    • Power and Culture addresses the questions of power by looking at the power aspects of the established order of culture and by investigating the political economy of cultural production.
